Thrice Blessed Word Of God

Thrice blessed Word of God!
Gift of a Father’s love,
Which holy prophets wrote,
Moved by the Holy Dove:

Within thy pages fair,
What hidden treasure lies!
Sweet lessons for the young,
Deep wisdom for the wise,

A well of water pure,
A mine of priceless gold;
The eye of faith alone
thy secrets can unfold.

Yet may the childlike heart
From thy sweet teaching learn
The way to endless life,
And Jesus’ mind discern.

Therefore with grateful hearts,
O Trinity divine,
We magnify Thy name,
For this blest gift of Thine.
